The Paper Shelter Challenge #302 - Dies and/or Punches

I went for a sepia look on my card this week. I used the stamp Vintage Seamstress. She is coloured with Copics. I used a die for the shape of the card and added ribbon and lace through the spaces. I used a Martha Stewart border punch above and below the image. I stamped the edges of the image with a zigzag stitch stamp. The corner heart and buttons stamp and the sentiment are part of a stamp set. My papers are from DCWV Linen and Lace paper pack. The bottom embellishments are buttons and I have added a variety of flowers and smaller buttons to finish it off.

And my punched edge...
